Can I use Lightning to 30-pin Adapter + 30-pin to VGA Adapter to connect iPad mini with my projector?

I already have 30-pin to VGA Adapter that can properly display iPhone 4s screen on projector. I'm deciding to buy iPad mini with an adapter between Lightning to 30-pin Adapter or Lightning to VGA Adapter. Which one should I buy?

I think Lightning to 30-pin Adapter is multi-purpose adapter but I'm not sure that will it work properly if I connect like this?

iPad mini -> Lightning to 30-pin Adapter -> 30-pin to VGA Adapter -> Projector

    No, you can't use the 30-pin to VGA in conjunction with the 30-pin to lightning to get around buying the new VGA to lightning ...Boo! Sadly no one at the Apple Store seemed to know this (and they didn't have the new one in stock)...I should have checked this forum first! Off to another Apple store...

  • No. It doesn't work. You have to buy the new adaptor unfortunately.
